Here's Archie!

Postby etranger » 07 Apr 2012

A bit smaller than my usual 15mm, Skytrex mobile WWI AA guns, AAMGs & A balloon winch lorry for completeness. They're 1/144 (~10mm) & for use in Wings of War. The basic lorry is very generic, although they have a fairly distinctive radiator which does resemble (fortunately) both a British & a German manufacturers products. Similarly the AA guns are non descript, 3 to 4". The quad AAMG mounts are of the Maxim/Vickers type. So I went for a generic "WWI green' paint scheme, with khaki clad crews. They're more British than German in appearance but will be changing sides as required on the table.

An AAMG. Not something you would want aiming at you as a pilot!

Cute vehicles! I like the balloon winch. Do you have a balloon to go with it?

Wings of War is a great game. :good:

Yes, I've got the WoW observation balloon. Bit pushed for time in getting the photos but next time I've got the balloon out I'll show the lorry in action.

Nice detail on those trucks for 10mm, the casting is quite nice.

Nice entry, nice to see something different :wave:

They definitely have a high cuteness. And they're nicely painted as well, good job! A great addition to any WoW table :thumbsup:

It's usually beyond me too! Generally I work in 15mm for land combat. There's some great 10mm stuff out there rhough, from Pendraken amongst others

Well done! You managed to put more detail on your trucks than I did with mine. Would love to see some pics of them in action.
